I've been lurking here for a little while now and I thought I'd post my first rant.

I'm an intern at a software development company and I have to design an application for the company, that will only be used in the company.
Both my frontend and backend are coming along decently, but still being new to the whole development scene, I didn't gather enough user stories from my colleagues.
So normally everybody is working hard, but has time. But the exact day I planned to gather some more user stories everybody is as busy as could possibly be.
Now I'm sitting here thinking what to do. My brain trembles from it and if I get can't get an idea of what to do soon, I'll feel truly slothfull.

I know my problem is far from horrible, when compared to some of the rants I've read here. But I really have no idea what I should do at the moment.

Oh, and if you got the two references I did to a certain series, you have suffered.

    As can be seen, I did not know too well how the tag system works...... :/

    Don't stress 😀 Unless it is absolutely critical do not bother them today. Try never to impact production. They will appreciate that. Contact them to set a meeting later in the week. Mention you realize you know how busy they are today. You should get points for being considerate and it will come back to you.
    Also, set the meeting for only the time you need. So, if you need 37 minutes - schedule for 37 minutes - not 1 hour... They will appreciate that. I have been using these and many other meeting techniques for years and they work well for me.
    Let us know how it goes.

    @Jumpshot44 Thanks for the tips, I don't need to schedule a meeting to get the user stories though. The company is relatively small and easy going. If I ask a colleague if he/she isn't too busy, I can just sit down with him/her and run through what he/she would like to see.

    I do really appreciate the tips though
